I am so honored to have my wet plate of Ernie LaPointe called "Eternal Field" accepted into the permanent archives of the North Dakota State Historical Society at the Heritage Center here in Bismarck. The plate will be taken care of for many generations to come. As a wet plate collodion artist, there is no greater validation.
The plate of Ernie is 8x10" in size and on black glass. Ernie heard about the induction and made a special trip up to Bismarck to be on hand to give the plate to the curators.
